KELLEY WHITE was born and raised in New Hampshire and has degrees from Dartmouth College and Harvard Medical School. She has been a pediatrician in inner-city Philadelphia for the past twenty years. She has had over 250 poems published by more than one hundred journals, including American Writing, The Café Review, Feminist Studies, and most recently, Whiskey Island Magazine and Rattle. A book of my "medical" poems, The Patient Presents, has been published by The People's Press in Baltimore, and a chapbook of very different material, "I am going to walk toward the sanctuary," will be published this summer by Nepenthe Books/Via Dolorosa Press. Kelley received a Pushcart nomination for an experimental piece from Gravity Presses in 2000, her first year of submission.
